The beauty of California came alive on Saturday, January 4 in Long Beach as Miss California USA 2014 and Miss California Teen USA 2014 hopefuls showed what they were made of in the final competition. Primped, polished and poised, two young women earned the prestigious titles to represent the Golden State at the upcoming national pageants: Congratulations to Miss California USA 2014 Cassandra Kunze and Miss California Teen USA 2014 Bianca Vierra.
Representing Ardell Lashes and China Glaze Nail Lacquer on the judging panel was Regina Rodriguez, a Senior Brand Manager. Rodriquez, a beauty industry veteran, judged the Miss California Teen USA pageant and couldn’t believe how incredible the experience was, stating, “Going into this experience as a newcomer to the pageant industry, I was not sure what to expect. I now walk away with the utmost respect and admiration for these young women who work so hard to accomplish their dreams.”
In the days leading up to the finals, contestants gathered in Long Beach, CA for the preliminary events and received gift bags filled with China Glaze Nail Lacquers and Ardell Lashes, both official pageant sponsors. Trusted by pageant professionals for their long-lasting color, style variety and ease of application, the brands’ products have been worn by many of the contestants throughout their pageant careers.
Official pageant sponsors Ardell Lashes and China Glaze Nail Lacquer will be providing the newly crowned titleholders with product throughout the year of their reign.
